The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) on Sunday launched the country’s longest city bus route service, connecting all areas along the Outer Ring Road in Bangalore.

As many as 24 buses, covering 117 kms around the City, will ply on this route (Banashankari to Banashankari) under the first phase of this project. The number of buses will be increased based on the requirements in coming days, Transport Minister Mallikarjuna Kharge said after launching the project in Bangalore.

Under this service, buses will start plying from 6 am every day from the two designated places --BTM Layout and Attiguppe. In total, there will be 24 trips on this route in a day, in the frequency of one bus for every half an hour.

Among areas covered under this service include BTM Layout, Bommanahalli, Chandapura, Attiguppe, Sarjapur, Dommasandra, Varthur, Hebbal, Kottigepalya and Kengeri. Besides, it will also connect important locations on the outskirts including Central Silk Board, Electronic City, Narayana Hrudayalaya, Sai Baba Hospital, White Field Industrial Estate, K R Puram Railway Station, BEL, Yeshwanthpura APMC Yard, R V Engineering College and PES Engineering College.

Volvo to tech park
Mr Kharge said that hi-tech Volvo buses will soon be inducted into the existing fleet of BMTC buses to provide “better” and “quality” bus service to employees of Electronic City and ITPL.

The State Government will initiate stringent action against miscreants who damaged BMTC and KSRTC buses during the protest against Benny Hinn’s programme on Friday, Mr Kharge said.

“There is a limit for everything. The Government will not tolerate if they (miscreants) damage public property,” he warned. Whether it is the Rajkumar kidnap issue or CET or Benny Hinn, BMTC buses have always become the target of violence.

Around 300 buses were damaged on Friday and it has caused a loss of over Rs 1.5 crore to BMTC. Who will make good this loss?, he questioned.
